Manchester United star Juan Mata could be sold this summer by new boss Louis Van Gaal, according to the Daily Express website.
Barcelona are ready to pounce for the former Chelsea star as they look to rebuild their side under new boss Luis Enrique.
And a bid of £40 million will seemingly be enough according to reports, as
Van Gaal is ready to listen to serious offers as he evaluates his new squad.
The ex-Bayern Munich chief prefers to play with one playmaker behind the main striker, and with Wayne Rooney his obvious choice behind Robin Van Persie in attack, Mata could be sacrificed to raise funds for pacy, direct wide-men.
